    • Thanks, Catherine! I also taught special education years ago. Those experiences, along with counseling, sparked my interest in resiliency! Some of my students were amazing despite their disabilities. They were determined not to let anything stop them from being successful and following their dreams! “Believe” Is a great book for children with and without disabilities!

  2. This story sounds great. All children need encouragement to believe in themselves.

  3. This book sounds wonderful. With all of the stress that comes with growing up, it is very important for kids to learn to cope with stress and adversity and bounce back from any obstacle that may come their way!

    • You are right, Kelly! One really can’t get out of life without facing some obstacles. The better prepared the person is, the better their life!

  4. I am sometimes at a loss for words to encourage my grandkids to believe in themselves, so having a book that prepares them for tough times would be helpful as we deal with some difficulties.

    • I hope you are able to use “Believe” as a resource with your grandchildren. It certainly opens itself to a lot of conversations on believing in themselves! Using the book as a decoration allows the children to be constantly reminded to BELIEVE!!!

  5. Looks fabulous. I have been seeing the word “believe” quite a bit lately. My daughter’s high school took on a new motto this year – “I believe” to try to encourage students to want to do better, get involved, and just have a positive attitude – as well as get the community and parents involved. I would love to get this book and share it with my daughter. Might be nice if we had our high schoolers share it with our elementary and middle school students.

    • Sara, I have my book in my high school office and find the students very interested in it. It has sparked great conversations with them! It seems to be our mantra now, too! I love that “Believe” is a community initiative! That is wonderful!

  6. I enjoyed listening to Kasey while watching the video. I wish I had a book like this while my 8 year old was going through chemotherapy and it’s after effects. It’s so important to instill the sense that everything passes and we can conquer that feeling of loss or not being able to be positive etc. It’s a great idea for boks. Thanks for the chance.

  7. Carol, It is a great book for children with cancer or any disease. I actually dedicated “Believe” to one of my former students who had and still has (8 years later) cancer. She lost her arm to it when she was a senior! She is the icon of resiliency! God bless your child!

  8. I like that the books teach children to face their challenges and not hide from them…a very good thing to teach 🙂

      • Thank you, Kristie. I agree! If they don’t face them early on, they will only hurt longer!

  9. My children are fortunate that they don’t have any special obstacles or challenges to overcome, however a book like this is important for all children to read. If I were the lucky winner, I would read this to them (several times) and then donate it to the special education school in our city. What a terrific book!

    • Your children are lucky! This book is intended for all children as those who haven’t faced any obstacles just yet, may some day and will need the tools to do so successfully! Thank you for sharing your post!
